Literally The Only Place To Stay at Suomenlinna
I enjoyed my stay at the Hostel Suomenlinna. I strongly suggest anyone who wants to have a more than cursory look at the Fortress to consider staying here. I is literally the only place to stay on Suomenlinna. I found the Hostel to be both clean and comfortable. I shared my room with six strangers but that was not a problem. The Hostel allowed me to store my large suitcase in the office after I checked out in the morning so that I could tour the Fortress. There are, however, two things that someone considering a stay should be aware of: First, the reception has extremely limited hours (8:00AM to 3:30AM); and, Second, if you want breakfast in the morning, they require 24 HOURS prior notification. As check in is not until 2:00PM, that was impossible for me. But, from what I saw of the buffet, the price of breakfast may not be worth it for many travelers. There are many restaurants and a market nearby.

Peace on the islands
Wonderful location on the islands - a stone's throw from the ferry dock and a supermarket. Would love longer hours at reception and also would love if they made/stripped the beds for you, but I recognise the extra staff would !mean extra costs, as well as perhaps removing some of the charm that there is. Everyone I met was helpful, whether guest or staff. It wasn't too loud (admittedly I was that midweek in late November), and despite a room off the kitchen area I barely heard a thing. Probably not where you want to stay for a week of exploring Helsinki, but for one or two nights of your four or so nights in Helsinki this is a great place to stay.
